It bears repeating at this point that the struggle to stop the secret sale and protect Owls Head Provincial Park has never been just about Owls Head.
It has never been about preventing local economic development , and never about just preventing golf courses.
It is about protecting all our Provincial Parks and Wilderness Areas.
Minister Rankin and Premier McNeil have both stated publicly that every property in the Parks and Protected Areas Plan is ” under review.” Any property on that list can be removed and offered for sale without public knowledge or oversight, and without following established policies and procedures.
After the years of public engagement, stewardship, and commitments to protect our lands, for the government to act in this manner is morally and ethically unacceptable.
Stop the sale. Save Owls Head.
